I love Halloween. It’s definitely one of my top three holidays, right there with Christmas and Labor Day (sorry the Fall is such a magical time of year). Each year, I wait excitedly for the Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School to begin placing their Halloween scarecrows. It has become a Fall family tradition. I like […]

There is something special about walking into the Martha’s Vineyard Food & Wine Festival’s Grand Tasting. Perhaps it’s the anticipation of discovering new wines or the amazing food being served, or the fact that this event is like an epic Fall gathering of locals and visitors. The Grand Tasting is held on the grounds of […]

From writing about what was new with this year’s Local Wild Food Challenge, I was excited to go and experience the event. And I was not disappointed. This year, I tried a new approach. Instead of going right when the LWFC opened its “gates,” I went with my family around 1:30 p.m. My reasoning for […]

Once a dive bar always a dive bar. The Ritz is getting back to its roots. Not fancy, not a BBQ joint, just a little bar with good food and drinks and a colorful clientele. Over the the last couple years, The Ritz has been on a journey sort of, trying out new things, learning […]

I have known Nina Carter Hitchen for a number of years from all sorts of things. This amazing mom of 6-year-old twins has slowly and consciously been evolving towards a Zero Waste lifestyle. I always get to see snips of this process, amazing pics on instagram, inspiring snack containers at soccer, but recently I learned […]

They stand as welcoming beacons to Martha’s Vineyard — representing both the island’s maritime past, and today, a favored family photo op, and selfie spot. The five lighthouses of Martha’s Vineyard have become iconic island images. They stretch from Edgartown Harbor, to East and West Chop on Vineyard Haven Harbor, to Cape Pogue on Chappy, to the cliffs of […]

A restaurant doesn’t have to be big or fancy to be amazing. Sometimes, it just needs the right attitude and food to make it out of this world. Lucky for us, we have that at Red Cat Kitchen restaurant in Oak Bluffs. Since 2012, Red Cat has been delighting our palates and igniting our souls […]
